Walking through the Old City of Damascus, came across this adorable little girl sitting in her doorway eating lunch. I fell in love. Syria is beautiful through its people, it’s mountains, it’s trees, it’s breeze…everything. What does it take to end this conflict?

Gimpses of Syria life

Looking back at my footage from the last few days and realizing that this time it will be particularly hard to leave Syria. The people I met here this trip had a huge impact on me…especially Alaa and Dua in this photo. Social media campaigns don’t end wars, but they can raise awareness to remind people that most of those suffering from this war are victims who just want to live. Syria deserves better.
